      SJSU Urban Planning Internship for The Alameda Business Association:

      The Alameda Business Association has internship positions available for Urban Planning students interested in researching planning proposals for the future of The Alameda.  The Alameda was constructed as the "first true road" in California by the Spanish priest Magin de Catalá in 1799.  A continuation of Santa Clara St., this three-mile stretch between Downtown San Jose and Santa Clara was home to the state's first stagecoach line and first interurban railroad.  With at least two new condo complexes under construction and a Whole Foods on the way, the street is on the brink of another historic transformation.  While residents and business owners are looking forward to the fresh energy that will come from new housing and retail options, they are also hoping to maintain the area's unique sense of historical and cultural identity.  As a volunteer Association made up of community stakeholders, The Alameda Business Association is working to develop a cohesive vision for The Alameda.  In order to enhance work being done by community members, the Association is looking to the expertise of Urban Planning students to help research the following issues:        

      *  The process of re-routing State Highway 82 off of The Alameda
      *  Strategies to maximize available parking
      *  Creating walkable, neighborhood-friendly development
      *  Historic preservation and the integration of old and new construction

      For more information, please contact Becky Herhold, assistant to the Alameda Business Association, at (408) 451-6978.
